Some of us in Malden were not surprised when we heard that Kari Percival had written and illustrated a book for children. She is amazing in everything she sets her mind to. This book is something very special and brings together all of Percival’s talents and passions.
Percival is a multimedia artist who believes strongly in protecting the environment while enjoying all that nature brings to life. She is a printmaker, street muralist, fine artist, fairy kit maker and mother of two young boys, ages nine and two.
A combination of all these things resulted in her new book, published by Penguin Random House, “How to Say Hello to A Worm: A First Guide to Outside,” which will be released on February 22. Illustrated and written by Percival, her delightful children’s book embodies the magic of gardening and encourages all readers, from those who love the outdoors to those with hesitation, to interact with nature at their own, comfortable pace.
